Today another Galaxy option has appeared from the depths of the Milky Way to provide users with yet another Galaxy option. With the high end Galaxy S II devices, you can pick up the cream of the crop handset, need a bit more size? The Galaxy Note can help, want a tablet? No problem the Galaxy Tab has your back. Want a super small yet powerful Galaxy? Well… the Galaxy Pocket is now here to fill that void.
The Samsung Galaxy Pocket is a new super compact budget minded smart phone that fills in the low to mid range of the Galaxy devices alongside the recently announced Galaxy S Blaze 4G.
